The Unions21 Podcast

Women, Work and Barriers to Industrial Prosperity -w/Jess Phillips MP

May 20, 2019

In the latest Unions21 podcast, Becky and Simon spend some time with Jess Phillips MP, co-chair of the All Party Parliamentary Group  (APPG) on Women and Work.  Along the way, we talk childcare (why describing it as low-skill is so wide of the mark) why it’s good to laugh  (“gags are supposed to be funny, that’s the point”), and why we shouldn’t be grateful when we win.  If we categorise people as either “radiators” or “drains”, there’s no doubt Jess is in the former camp. We give a shout-out to a great work by NAPO in overturning the government’s deeply flawed part-privatisation of the probation service. A Makes-You-Think production
